Freedom Writers (Widescreen Edition)

Freedom Writers (Widescreen Edition)

A young teacher inspires her class of at-risk students to learn tolerance, apply themselves, and pursue education beyond high school. Though the “inspirational teacher” theme may feel done to death, Freedom Writers succeeds because it emphasizes the students as much as the teacher. Erin Gruwell (Hilary Swank, Million Dollar Baby, Boys Don’t Cry) comes to a southern California high school bubbling over with naive optimism, but quickly discovers that her unruly classroom isn’t easily won over by her good intentions. After a few floundering attempts to connect with her students, Gruwell gives them the assignment of keeping journals about their own lives–an assignment that the class bites into with relish, which eventually bonds them together

Cultural Mediators: Artists and Writers at the Crossroads of Tradition, Innovation and Reception in the Low Countries and Italy 1450-1650 (Groningen Studies in Cultural Change)

Cultural Mediators: Artists and Writers at the Crossroads of Tradition, Innovation and Reception in the Low Countries and Italy 1450-1650 (Groningen Studies in Cultural Change)

The notion of cultural mediation is a promising albeit not yet methodologically clear-cut and well-probed instrument for studying artistic and literary phenomena in the Late Medieval and Early Modern Period. This volume addresses the role of artists and writers as cultural mediators in a variety of cultural fields such as religion, politics, morality and artistic expression (art, literature and theatre). It fully acknowledges the diversity of roles that the term cultural mediator incorporates. The artist or writer may be a neutral transmitter, a dedicated instructor, a conscious advocate, an unconscious exponent or an autonomous inventor of whatever message is being transmitted by way of visual or verbal artefacts. In reality, these roles w
